For those short on time or who want to bypass the Drake Passage, a fly-cruise is the perfect option. Fly directly to King George Island in the Shetland Islands where you will dive straight into the action on this 8-day itinerary.
Arrive in Punta Arenas, Chile, where you are welcomed by staff and transferred to your hotel. In the afternoon, you will attend a briefing about your voyage and the essential guidelines for Antarctic visitors. Later, gather for a welcome dinner and meet your fellow adventurers while enjoying a typical regional dinner.
Your Antarctic adventure begins with a two-hour flight from Punta Arenas to King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. As you step off the plane, you’ll experience your first lungful of clean Antarctic air and a sense of anticipation mounts.
Explore the area surrounding Chile’s Frei Station and Russia’s Bellingshausen station, before boarding a Zodiac to embark your expedition vessel.
Cruise between the South Shetland Islands and the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, sailing along ice- filled fjords and among spectacular icebergs, while enjoying the company of sea birds, penguins, seals and whales.
Each day, disembark by Zodiac and explore the landscape together with expert polar guides. No journey is the same as the expedition team sets the voyage route to take advantage of the ever-changing opportunities provided by nature, crafting a unique and extraordinary experience each time.
Your voyage may include visits to sites such as Paulet Island, Hope Bay, Port Lockroy, Petermann Island, Paradise Bay, Deception Island, the Lemaire Channel, or many other magnificent places. On board the ship, attend an engaging program of lectures and presentations, and enjoy spectacular vistas from the glass-enclosed lounge while sharing your daily adventures with fellow guests.
Return to King George Island and bid farewell to Antarctica before boarding your flight back to Punta Arenas. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel for the night.
After breakfast, transfer to Punta Arenas airport for your onward flight.
